More Settled Science: Wrong about Ice Melt in Greenland, Sea-Rise

More hyperbolic rantings of the delusional. This was yet another GRACE study which has been all over the map on estimates of ice loss. Still, even the extreme estimates from this study isn't anything to wet your pants over. They estimate less than 200gt/yr in ice loss. That represents about 0.5mm of sea level rise. Very scary. Considering the latest studies from the Antarctica and Himalayan range show negligible loss or actual gain of mass, we can say that ice loss isn't going to make much of an impact for many, many years. Zwally et al using ICESat (a satellite built for such endeavors) puts the mass loss at 80-100 gt/yr..... significantly lower than Hang and crew.

New research published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences tends to now show that ice melt estimates previously calculated for Greenland have not significantly accelerated- as has been previously postulated- nor has the melt contributed in a meaningful way to the rise of sea levels.

Recently, much of the destruction on the east coast as a consequence of Super-Mega-Hurricane Sandy Gore was blamed on the rise in sea-levels, which have been blamed on…drum roll…global warming.

The newest revelation, amongst many in the last several years that have muffled the global warming chants of  “settled science, settled...
